Locating Art Loft Show
Worth the Trouble
A NEW ART GROUP-The Art Loft, Inc.-is presently holding it
first exhibition (a collection of members' works) at the Art Loft.
To describe where this is located is, to say the least, difficult, a
let's let it go by saying that it is at the end of two alleys-one runnin
east from Maynard, one moving north from William-in back of tU
DKE tempe, and over the Potters Guild. Entry to the loft itself is ofte
obstructed by some vehicle (usually foreign), and there are signs, a
unlikely places that point it out.
Last Friday evening there was also a Hawaiian-type torch to ligt
up the entry as well as the refuse cans and general clutter of debr
that is to be expected in alleys and, often, loft galleries, We wer
reminded of Mehitabel. Anyone haying visited the premises befo2
will not, in all probability, have any qualms at going onl, and even tb
rather indefinite directions avail-
able and the nearly sinister locale
should not put off even a novice4a
to the place. The showing is more y
than worth the trouble of finding
it out.

southern Approach to Integration
Necessary to Its Implementation

courts have brought back to the integration
tion one element it has been lacking since
1954 Supreme Court decision, namely, con-
ration of Southern feelings and problems.
onday a federal district judge, ordered by a
er court to fix a definite date for integra-
of schools in Prince Edward County in
inia's "black-belt' country, set 1965 as a
tative" date. This case has been pending-
e 1954 being one of the priginal five cases
hich the Supreme Court based its "historic'
gregation decision. The recent delay was
ed by Southerners as a victory.
he Little Rock integration dispute is now
g' handled by the United States Eighth
suit Court of Appeals in St. Louis. The city's;
ol board was previously granted a reprieve
1 1961 to integrate its schools, The Court is
reconsidering the controversy about sus-
lion of integration which was begun last
"Its outcome .could affect the pace of
)ol desegregation throughout the South,"
news story said.
IC of these recent integeration questions
show attention has been given the Southern
lem which a court of Northern judges,
ng in a Washington, D.C., marble palace
hardly hlave grasped, especially when the
sion was destined to make this court famous
merican history.
he South has a large Negro population, in
ir states almpst as large as the white pope-
in. When a practice of 100 years of publicly-
>orted segregated schools is wiped away in
blow by a court, a tradition is killed. A long
i, perhaps the 100 years which saw the rise
hie present system of state education, could,
onably be expected for Implementation of
decision. This has not been the intent of'

the Court, however, and the rapid desegregation
has made many white Southerners adamant in
their fight to delay the inevitable.
The recent primary victory of the segregation
hero of Little Rock, Orval Faubus, shows that
the white citizens uphold his use of troops to
stifle integration. In some Southern states,
Georgia, for example, integration has not taken
place and the winners of state offices are rabid
THE NORTHERN "liberal" mind refuses to
consider that the segregationalists may be
right, or at least strong and vocal enough to
make it appear that they are right on the
integration question. No court can force people
against their firm beliefs on an emotional issue
such as this; it merely makes them more
A Southern solution to a Southern problem is
what should be encouraged, and it is the only
solution which can work. The recent court
decisions delaying integration have tended to
recognize this. A gradual education of white
Southerners, or merely time to approach the
integration question very slowly and accept the
inevitable is the only solution which will work
in the South.
A Little Rock affair every year does no one
any good; it is hard on the children, many of
whom accept integration without battle; it is
hard on national prestige and it accomplishes
nothing, unless a violent show, of ill feelings is
the desired result.
".urry up, please, it's time"-T. S. Eliot's
line from "The Wasteland"-has no place in
the integration question; it is a question of
conscience and time, and it is only regrettable
that any decision of the type is forced upon
citizens against their will.

River Park Bill Dammed Up

UPSTAIRS (hang on to the rail-
ing, tightly) the Loft presents a
fair sized room not too densely
populated with things and an
exhibit that was quite pleasing to
see. , '
The pieces shown (paintings,
sculptures, drawings, prints) are
vigorous without being wild, ad-
venturous without being fool
hardy, forceful without being over-,
whelming. And if that isn't enough,
they are not facile copies of other,
more notorious or illustrious art
For so young a group (the very
pleasant brochure lists, among
other details, ages for all ex-
hibitors, and they range between
21 and 30) the works display a
sureness and maturity of concept
and manipulation that is gratify-
ing and unusual.
At the same time the pieces,
shown escape the labored or lugu-
brious or worked-over. The Lofters
-in the person of Mrs. Malcom
McMullen, chairman-received us
most hospitably both socially and
in their willingness to share with
+us their work, for which we are'
NONE of the works shown are
what one could term bad (even

U.S. Troop.Withdrawal Needed

"CHEERING" news from Lebanon yes-

ent-elect has said that the withdrawal
nerican troops from Lebanon was "fore-
among his national aims."
e statement seemed to be rather vague,

set by Shehab. Indeed, he quoted the
iese national charter of 1943, which is not

troops will have to be withdrawn within the,
next two or three months. The troops can
truthfully be said to have done their job well.
But prolonging, our soldiers stay in Lebanon
should not add ;much towards advancing our
cause in Lebanon or the Middle East.
BUT IT SHOULD not appear that wishy-
washy comments by Faud Shehab or more
truculent threats by Lebanese rebel leaders
have brought about the withdrawal. Rather, the
credit for the move should be placed .on the
shoulders of Lebanese President Chamoun.
Bringing this state of affairs about may be
easier said than done. As one method of achiev-
ing these ends, we would suggest that the
American troop withdrawals should start early
one morning in the next month or two. About
noon of the same day, President Chamoun
should casually announce that the United States
troops are being withdrawn, as he requested,
and then go back to clearing up his office
preparatory to1leaving the Lebanese presidency.
This would both minirpize the importance of
the withdrawals and emiphasize that Chamoun,
and not the rebels, has control of the situation.
rHEN, whenever.Chamoun is ready, he should
be invitedt to come to the United States after
his term of office is up Sept. 23. We have waited
our lavish welcomes on people much less deserv-
ing. Chamoun has and he should be given the
welcome and the appreciation that he deserves.
Chamoun has done an excellent job in warn-
ing of and acting against the dangers present
in the Middle East. If he sometimes appears,
to be a prophet without honor in his own
country, he should not be in ours.,

WASHINGTON - How a single
member of Congress can
thwart the majority will of the
Senate and House, plus a prom-
inent member of the Supreme
Court, is demonstrated in the cur-
rent holdup of a bill to create a,
national park on the Potomac
River in near-by Maryland.
For more than a year this bill,
already passed by the Senate, has
been -blocked by one lady - Rep.
Gracie Pfost of Idaho, Democrat,
in the House Interior Committee.
Mrs. Pfost is a beautiful and
charming lady who is passionately
devoted to dams in her section of
the country. She is so passionate
about dams that she also wants
dams near Washington.
However, what's good for Idaho
is not always good for Maryland,
Virginia, and the, District of Co-
lumbia..Pespite this, Gracie has
set herself up as the lady dictator
to overrule the Senate, the House,
the Interior Department, wild life
conservators, and millions of
others who want to develop a
national park along the Potomac.
* * *
THE PARK extends along the
Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, orig-
inally surveyed by George Wash-
ington and built to carry the early
commerce of the capital up toward
the Ohio River. The canal now
belongs to the government.
And the city of Washington,
bulging with around 1,954,000 peo-
ple in its metropolitan area, needs
a near-by recreation park. The
government already owns the ca-
nal, and the bill already passed by
the Senate would help develop it
for recreation and wild life.
The Gentle Lady from Idaho,
however, wants a high water dam
on the Potomac just as she wants

a high dam, Hells Canyon, on the
Snake River.
So she has suspended hearings
on the C & 0 Canal Park. Wit-
nesses have asked to be heard.
Other members of Congress are
ready to pass the bill, but Gentle
Lady Gracie, as chairman of the .
subcommittee of the House In-
terior Committee, says no. She
won't hold any more hearings.
When ,Republicans were blocking
a vote on Hells Canyon in this"
same committee, a lot of people
came to Gracie's defense. Philip
Randolphofathe Brotherhood of
Sleeping Car Porters and Clarence
Mitchell of the NAACP tried to
persuade Congressman Adam Clay-
ton Powell of Harlem, who held
the key vote, to go back to Wash-
ington and vote. Carmine de Sapio,
head of Tammany, and many
others tried to help the Gentle
Lady from Idaho get her dam.
But now that some other people
want a park near Washington, and
she wants a dam, the Gentle Lady
is just as obstinate and elusive as
Congressman Adam Clayton
Note-The Senate bill providing
for the park contains a concrete
provision that if the Army en-
gineers find Washington needs a
dam, it would have priority.

LUNCHING at the Turkish em-
bassy the other day, Gen. Nathan
Twining, efficient chairman of the
Joint Chiefs of Staff, received
eye-opening facts regarding the
arms Russia has been supplying
her allies in the Near East com-
pared with the American arms ,
supplied our allies.
Gen. Feyzj Menguc, Turkish
chief of staff, told Twining how
Russia had shipped the most mod-
ern weapons in her arsenal to

Syria, on Turkey's southern bord-'
er, also to Egypt, both members of
the United Arab Republic.,
He told how Russian MIG-17s
sent to Syria now fly over Russian
territory, while the Turkish air
force, equipped with slow-flying
American Sabre-Jets, can't reach
Twining listened carefully; prom-
ised to try to send Turkey some-
thing besides out-of-date American
arms. From the Turkish chief of
staff, he received a modest re-
quest for 60,000 Garand lifles.
'Turkish soldiers make about the
best infantrymen in the world.
Naturally General Menguc wanted
modern rifles for them.
to do his best, but found that un-
fortunately the United States does
not have enough Garand rifles on
handto supply Turkey before 1959.
By that time we could supply 40,-
000. The full 60,000 would not be
available until 1960.
The Eisenhower Administration
has now awakened to the import-
ance of Turkey's vital role within
gunshot of Russia's armed might.
For three years Turkey has been
trying to get an 300,000,,000 credit
from the United States, even hired
ex-Gov. Tom Dewey, the man who
made Ike President, as its lawyer
in order to help get the- loan.
However, only a driblet of money
was forthcoming.
With the Iraqui-Lebanon crisis,
however, the Administration has
awakened to Turkey's importance
and has arranged to extend $334,-
000,000 to Turkey. Part is being
advanced by the United States,
part by the International Monetary
Fund, part by the Organization for
European Economic Coperation.

A THENS-Not even the Middle
East crisis could push Cyprus
out of the headlines of the Greek
papers. The status of the island is
of far more burning importance
here than any summit conference
.- unless, of course, it includes
Cyprus on the agenda.
The recent wave of arrests by
the British haye caused a storm
of, protest in Greece. The island's
governor, Sir Hugh Fort, has been
accused of "Hitler-like methods."
The Turkish Cypriot leader's quick
trip to Ankara while 2,000 Greeks
were arrested drew all manner of
abuse as has the small number of
Turks arrested lately; and con-
tinued complaints of "Anglo-
Turkish conspiracy" are heard.

be some justice in the last charge.

benefits of British rule and leaves'
Britain with no better claim to be
the champion of law and order
than Greece has.
What is particularly unfortun-
ate, from the American point of
view, is that the continued struggle
with Britain has tended to push
Greece into the "neutralist" camp.
Her antipathy toward Britain
caused her to view the Anglo-
American Middle East intervention
with a comparatively skeptical eye,
accepting only as an excuse the
possibility of Communist trouble-
making there.
THE OMINOUS foreign min-
isters' meeting between Greece,
Yugoslavia and the United Arab
Republic should also give pause to
the West.
